I think my favourite feature is the readable e-books. We got to view a few recently and they are awesome!!

Jackie said...

There are many things I like about their website. I like to parent and homeschool section, the activities, and the fact that you can do a book of the month club so you can pay over time. I would really like to win these books to experience their quality first hand.

Melissa Juvinall said...

I've not heard of these before but I think my son would love them. He's really into wild animals right now, and I'm afraid if I showed him the site he would want every title. We will be looking for these at the library!! I liked the section on the site for homeschoolers as well.

Melissa Juvinall said...

I follow your blog too!

I love their free trial eBook site - my little one will sit, listen and read for long periods of time. Moose and Magpie are one of her favorites! (Among others!). I have shared their site on my blog too. *Ü*

I didn't know you had a blog - I have heard lots about Itty Bitty and was bummed when I did not win Jolanthe's Itty Bitty giveaway. I have a 2 and 4 year old so I am hoping to enter yours!

Wow. What a great site. I like it that they include homeschoolers in a welcoming way. I like how they give a list of titles per topic. I like how they align standards of ed with how their books accomplish them so visually, and a lot more. Thanks for the heads up. Hope we win.

I am a brand new LIS, or LMS, at the primary level. I love the way these books are linked to the standards, other activities, and the information about the author (s) and illustrator (s)! I have added this site to my favorites tab, and as soon as I figure out how to purchase books... I will be back!
